When we lived in South Korea, we were given Korean names by our Teaching Manager, a dear lady who was our Korean "mother". Joanne named me "시은", pronounced shee-uhn, which she told me means "she gives grace"...

A Confirmation Conversation

If you've hung around here long enough, you know that we recently became Anglican. This journey has been deeply meaningful and spiritually rich. We are learning a lot and growing deeper in our faith in Jesus.
